Picked up Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. I haven't slept yet. I haven't eaten yet. I skipped classes and I'm calling out of work today to play.

Yeah...my night went like this. I got Oblivion around...5:00 PM. Got home at 6. Played Oblivion. Forgot to eat dinner, forgot to sleep. Stopped for about 20 minutes because of a terrible headache. Jumped back on and played until 4 am. Finally went to bed so I could wake up for work at 7. Went to work and left "sick" at about 11 am. Played Oblivion until about 10 minutes ago. I'm about to watch the special disc that came with the CE.

Now THAT is the life of a fu*king gamer. Kudos to you both, for you are hardcore. Hopefully I'll join you next week.

Just nailed Tetris DS and Metroid Prime Hunters at Best Buy. They are both FU*KING awesome. Hunters sequeezes the life out of that DS and knocks the hell out of the battery life. It's like a DS game from two years from now. GodDAMN impressive.

The Collector's Edition of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The major reason I got a 360.

I still need to get my PS 2 Modded so I can import the Pop N Music games. I keep forgetting >_<

But now that me and Corey each own a PS2 I can safely mod mine, and if something goes wrong, hers will still Work

The PS2 Pop'n games are great, so you won't regret it (and the unlock systems in 8 and up are much more straightforward than the confusing one in 6). My favorite game in the series is 9, but 8, 10, 11, and 12 all follow close behind. 7 and BH are also pretty fun, but they don't have nearly as many songs as the others.

So, if I were to buy just one, which would you recomend above all the others?

Definitely 8 or 9. I personally like 9 better, but 8 might be a better place to start since it would be a smoother transition from 6, and since it has a much quicker unlock system than 9. It's also generally the more popular of the two, so it should be easier to find.

Bought Prince of Persia: Sands of Time (Damn you Barkworm and Peanut!) for cheap. Pretty cool game, I'm really enjoying it so far.

He speaks the truth! You could play Warrior Within, but I don't really see you liking that game too much. Two Thrones is just so much better. Once you play it it's kind of difficult to go back to SoT without going "Oh, I wish I could do this here and that here!".

Nevertheless SoT is still the best one IMO. I simply like the level architecture and the overall mood better.

So do I, but the gameplay is so much better in TTT. The combat in SoT seems extremely boring and tedious now. Not that it was ever really spectacular to being with.

I agree. I remember how great Prince of persia sands of time was when I first played it but as I got through the game, it felt borign doing the same move over and over again.. There was a limited amount of different set of moves you could do.. Warrior within did alot more and had alot of bugs..

To tell you guys the truth, I never actually played The Two Thrones.. I beaten Sands of time, I got near the end of Warrior Within and due to the bugs in the game, there was a big major problem which many have had problems with.. There was a part where you couldn't contuine to the alst part of the game..

it pained me how much time I spent playing through the game just to finish it.. Warrior within just dragged on for hours.. The music!! So bad!! I wanted the style that SOT had!

Duke, it's a major bug.. Basically after you fight the empress for the 2nd time, in the throne room liek before but this time you would follow her to the portal and somehow the game wouldn't let me contuine from there.

That is the major bug I experienced.. It happened in otehr people copies..

Not a game, but I did buy the Oblivion guide today. I love guides like this, just huge ass books about everything in the game. Fun to read.
